Comprehensive care and treatment of children, teens and adults with psychiatric disorders; expertise in psychiatric diagnosis and advanced clinical psychopharmacology (psychiatric medications).
I have been in private psychiatric practice seeing a broad range of psychiatric disorders for over 25 years. I have also held major psychiatric management posts including medical director of two psychiatric hospitals--Cypress Creek Hospital in Houston Texas and Kingwood Pines Hospital in Kingwood Texas, state mental health commissioner in three states (Georgia, New Hampshire, Texas) and Assistant Commissioner in New York State. My interest and my specialty throughout my career is clinical psychopharmacology--treatment of psychiatric disorders with psychiatric medications. I attended the University of Texas in Austin and graduated from The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. I served in the U.S. Army Medical Corps, and did my postgraduate medical training at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx NY, University Hospitals of Cleveland (Ohio) and Austin (Texas) State Hospital. I have been married for 45 years and have 2 adult daughters.
